"Transistores de aire" is the first collaborative release between two of the best Argentinean experimental artists nowaddays: Anla Courtis (guitarrist of the essential, well-known experimental band Reynols) and Pablo Reche, a drone/noise master, with apparences in festivals as Mutek (2005) and Sonar (2000).
Recorded during the summer of 2005 in Buenos Aires, "transistores de aire" is a long, subtle, obscure and minimal drone, a piece without any kind of condiments, envelopes and/or make-up; just a pure, naked and dark piece suspended on a close space, as an oscillating movement of the air contained in an old analog machine.

Cold, Gray, Isolationist Drone
For me "Transistores de aire" EP is the quintessence of icy, gray, minimal isolationist drone. Images of being completely alone in a stark, unwelcoming landscape flash across my mind. Fluctuating waves of low rumbling noise coupled with sad, transparent tones, and menacing slices of feedback create a cold, heavy atmosphere as occasional shreds of elecronic scrapes act like a bitter wind stinging my face. One listen to this 18+ minute oppressive drone and you'll know why it's so brief - one could not last this long under these conditions. -LAJ-
